Influence of Parenting on Eating Behaviors Discussion

Reflecting again on your own development, did you have a mom who regularly commented on how you needed to eat more, or did your parent comment on how you really should be watching your weight? Historically, keepers of the kitchen and grocery shoppers—mothers anecdotally—have a lot of influence on what (and how much) their children eat. The article for Unit II examines whether mothers attempt to exert the same kind of influence over male versus female children.

Schreiber, A. C., Kesztyüs, D., Wirt, T., Erkelenz, N., Kobel, S., & Steinacker, J. M. (2014). Why do mothers encourage their children to control their weight: Cross-sectional study of possible contributing factors? BMC Public Health, 14(450), 1-7.

For this assignment, you will need to summarize the article, discuss the strengths or limitations you observe in the methodology, and answer the following questions:

The article suggests differential control for males versus females. What might be some of the long-term physical consequences for these differences in parental influence?

How might maternal influence on weight control impact female children who become mothers themselves and will be responsible for prenatal nutrition?

This research was conducted in Europe. Using your experiential knowledge, information from the article, and your assigned textbook readings from this course so far, would you expect similar findings if the research were conducted in the United States? Why, or why not?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
